Abstract

Male breast cancer is rare. Occult breast cancer in male is even rarer. Occult breast cancer is the absence of clinical palpable breast tumour with undetectable breast lesion on imagining like ultrasound and mammogram. We report a case of 68 year old elderly man presented as an occult breast cancer with metastatic axillary lymphadenopathy and lymphoedema of the ipsilateral arm. Immunohistochemistry staining plays an important role in influencing tissue diagnosis of occult breast cancer. To date, treatment for occult breast cancer in male is still not well established.
